The Bloggers Quilt Festival 2010

My first quilt festival entry.
Made for young Charlie last year.

I had the Alexander Henry 'Traffic' fabric for a while and suddenly thought I better make something from it before he 'grew' out of the cars theme.

When I pulled it out to take photos of it he yelled 'That's mine, what are you doing with it'.
Mmm, slightly possessive about his quilts.

I used cotton batting which makes it lovely and soft and lightweight.
Perfect for our spring and summer season.

I was just 'starting to get the hang of' free motion quilting with this quilt.
Confidence and free motion quilting is a good thing.

I love this quilt because it is so bright, happy and 'boyish' and it feels fantastic.

Use the link to the right to go and look at some inspiring quilts. Something for everyone.


  1. Fabulous - particularly like the different fabrics in the binding

  2. What a fun quilt! I love how your boy gets all possesive over his quilt, shows that he must really love it!

  3. So colorful and fun. What child wouldn't love this?

  4. gosh, that is a really happy fun quilt!

  5. I love it! I'm not a quilter but have close family friends and my Aunty who are. Think I might share the quilts I've been the lucky recipient of. x
